Inspiring Me Lately

I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster this month, but a few people have inspired me to remain positive along the way. I managed my first proper solo gym sessions without my personal trainer. I’m always a bit nervous when I go to the gym on my own, as I think I’m …

I’m a teenager again!

I didn’t want to go to the gym this morning, I was tired and had major DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness – or something similar) from the painting this weekend. I couldn’t justify having 2 mornings off in a row (doctor again tomorrow), so off I went. I was really glad I did, as I …

Weekly Windup

I thought I’d give you all a quick update on my life, you might be interested! Firstly, if you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll see that I was struggling with injuries and they were hampering my training at the gym. I am pretty much there with the recovery now, and am starting to load the …

Fighting Back

Last week I was I a really bad place mentally. My leg was sore, I just wanted to eat everything in sight and I was fed up of moaning about everything, so much so, that I wrote down my misery and didn’t post it for all to see. After going to the doctor and being …

Carbs or No Carbs!

I have hit an emotional wall with my training. I’m well aware that to shed fat, I need to eat healthily as well as exercise, so this isn’t me asking for a sympathy card saying “sorry you’re fat, but cut out the cakes”. I thought I was eating a pretty balanced diet, which includes a …

And rest!

I’m not very good at being told what to do or even what not to do, so when I was told not to exercise for 2 weeks and rest my knee, my gut reaction was to find ways I could work out without injuring myself further. I didn’t completely ignore the doctor. I rested my …

If all else fails, eat!

After this weekend’s antics, I thought I’d still make it to the gym. I got up early and was raring to go, albeit with a slight limp. 2 minutes into the warm up, I was really struggling, Rob took one look at me and told me to leave (charming hey!). I was dying to do …

Fighting Fit or Fat Pt3

I feel like I should be giving these individual titles, but as they all follow on from each other, hopefully you don’t mind. After my first day of the fitness programme, I wrote about how sore I was, well it hasnt eased off too much, but I can at least move my arms today. On …

Fighting Fit or Fat Pt2

UPDATE: Oh my life!!!! My arms were so sore this morning. My first session with James from 180 Degrees Gym, went really well (it may have helped that he was super attractive and probably 10 years younger than me). My workout consisted of the following (I have made up some names as I have forgotten …

Fighting Fit or Fat

I’m going to ignore the fact that I haven’t written anything for a while. There are many excuses I could use, but realistically I just haven’t been in the right headspace. I’m not dwelling on why, because it really isn’t anything I can put my finger on. Today I just had the urge to write, …
